Try Pop’s Diner for a taste of nostalgia at Carolina Beach

I go to the beach in the off-season because it’s the perfect time and place for a writer to write. However, I still like to explore and enjoy being a tourist as well. While spending a winter weekend working on my book at Carolina Beach, North Carolina,  I was directed to Pop’s Diner by a local. Pop’s is a delightful, old-time diner and proved to be the perfect spot for lunch. Fabulous, Fun Atmosphere Before I even walked inside, I could tell this is a fun place.

That’s precisely how I felt when I sat down to dine at Raleigh’s Taverna Agora Greek Kitchen and Bar. Taverna Agora was a landmark on Raleigh’s Glenwood Avenue, North, for years. The popular restaurant acquired a reputation for serving fine Greek cuisine at a reasonable price. In recent months, Taverna Agora has made a move from its old location and is now part of the city’s vibrant downtown dining scene at […]
